Prabhu Ram

Prabhu RamI am an industry analyst, data-driven storyteller, speaker, writer and market consultant, among others.

I head the Industry Intelligence Group (IIG) at CyberMedia Research (‘CMR’), a technology market advisory firm from India. I advise industry participants on the dynamic technology market in India and other Asian geographies through proprietary and custom technology research, cutting across technology domains.

I regularly undertake both supply and demand side research projects for the technology industry, providing insights and advice from technology, market, competitive intelligence and/or go-to-market perspectives.

On an average, 80-85% of my time is spent on advising our technology clients on current market trends and developments, and around 10% with technology vendors listening to them, and sharing my perspective and feedback, and around 5% with other ecosystem stakeholders, including VCs and Startups, interested in our technology coverage.

I have over 16 years of broad ranging executive experience at consulting and research companies, across Western Europe, primarily, Switzerland, France and Germany, and more recently in India.

Most recently, I was on the prestigious jury for the following awards

22nd TelecomAsia Awards 2019: Asia’s premium technology awards that recognises innovations from across Asia annually.

13th Annual TelecomsWorld Middle East Awards 2019: Middle East, Central and South Asia’s premium technology awards that recognises innovations from across the region.

Telecoms World Awards 2020: The global technology awards program recognising pathbreaking innovations and initiatives.

While this blog focuses on technology topics, it is strictly personal. It does not represent official CMR opinion, nor is it intended to represent the substantive analysis and peer-reviewed positions that would characterize my professional analysis work. You can find my CMR viewpoints at CMR and in popular media, including online and print.

I have been consistently quoted in the top-tier international and Indian media, including CNN, Nikkei Asian Review, BusinessInsider, Businessworld, The Times of India, Financial Express, Quartz India, The Economic Times, The Hindu Businessline, Business Today and HT Livemint, among others.

I cover tech over at Twitter, and, here’s my Linkedin.
